- 2017 wishes and late pumpkin pie

I made my very first and tasted my very first pumpkin pie (my own) late November. 

I couldn’t really compare with any other as it was my first one. 
It was made with fresh pumpkin as it is something more normal for me, then I fund out that most people make it with pumplin in a can. Well… I woud say… why not ? Still I bought a fresh one.

I then,  tried more for Christmas, same old thing, fresh pumpkin , the first one with the same dough and the second, I tried another variant, a dough with more butter…. It turned out that the second one was quiet amazing and I wanted to share that recipe with you. It’s a late pumpkin pie, as traditionnally it’s made between Halloween and Christmas. Let’s call it a ‘Post Christmas pie’ or ‘A good resolution pie’ It takes 15min to make, and it’s delicious, so Christmas or not, who cares ? We need a little treat after the Christmas treats. 

Before giving you this recipe I wanted to wish you all a wonderful 2017. Thank you for being there and reading me for a few year as you are more and more numerous. After thoses years, I hope that my Frenglish is less worse, but you seem to understand me still and that’s the most important. 

May this new year be better, let’s make it better with good energies, love and why not, a bit of wine… Happy New Year !!!
